So I'm trying to loop through some entries and order them by in a specific way. For an example let's say I have the following entires:

  • Example01
  • Example02
  • Example03
  • Example04

I now want to loop through these entries and order them in an order such as: Example03, Example01, Example04 and Example2. The order has to be custom where I can change it.

Is this possible and if so how can I achieve this? Thanks

You have a few options here:

  • Use an Entries field (as a Global or as a fields on a Single maybe?) to chose the entries and order them
  • Make the Entries a Structure section, so you can set the order
  • use craft.entries({ ids: [3, 1, 2], fixedOrder: true }) and query the Entries by ID (if they'll never be deleted and you're cool with hard-coding the order)
  • create an order field on that entry type to query them by, also with craft.entries()

It's up to you what the best solution would be, given your set-up, but you have plenty of options.

  • Is there a means of hard-coding order in templates using slug rather than ID? At the moment I have multiple for loops with if conditions, each matching a slug. – David Oliver Feb 22 '18 at 14:52
